Nikolai Semyonovich Leskov (1831-1895)

Nikolai Leskov, born in Orel province in 1831, is one of the most original and compulsive of Russian storytellers. Orphaned at an early age, he entered the civil service at sixteen, after which he travelled all over Russia for an Anglo-Russian company, his experiences giving him an unrivalled knowledge of all levels of Russian society. His tales of peasant, merchant and bureaucratic life, often in remote Russian provinces, are told in rich and colourful language, in highly colourful and endlessly inventive detail. He died in St Petersburg in 1895.
